What a bell-tower!

What a bell-tower! Located in The Old Town of Albufeira and part of the former hospital. Especially at night it is a beauty.

Very pretty landmark. We were staying close to the clocktower, and I certainly remember being woken early each day by the chiming of the clock bell. Make sure you don't get a hotel next to it....unless you are an early riser.

Most interesting was the Moorish ruins dig just outside the building. Was not open when we were there . Really not much to look at . While there we heard children's choir in one section of the building.

A nice landmark in Albufeira's old town. It's opposite the archaeological museum. The bell sounds every now and then during the day. At night the metal dome is nicely illuminated.

Nice tower as a landmark ok. Opening hours not always clear. Visit best during walk around centre. Good to do in morning hours.

Worth the climb up the steep cliff side road as there are several churches & a museum to see nearby too. We looked in one door & found ourselves in a music conservatory - wish we could have visited more of the inside .There are some interesting Moorish ruins in the dig just outside the Clock Tower . Lovely view... More

Myself and my family sat down on the lovely shaded area beside the sea and across the road from this landmark. The clock tower was very nice but it looks dull and nothing exciting especially on a busy street! There's also another building that use to be a hospital and its such ashame to leave it abandoned! They should really... More

Located in the old city, the clock tower has no real special attractions located in it or about it. When coming up from the beach you can see the tower and building from the upper ledge of the cliff. Ok for a walk by while navigating the winding streets but nothing special

Albufeira is a lovely seaside resort. The old town is truly picturesque and worth seeing. This tower stands on top of a hill in the old section. It is interesting to notice that the ironwork on top of the tower is a reminder of those which can be found in Provence, in southern France. The area around is really nice... More
